So many of you have been e-mailing me, waiting for a response to this heartbreaking news. It feels for so many like this separation is coming from a member of their own family. As you can see, a lot has been happening in the last 24 hours, and I for one can say it's devastating.
While I prefer to keep my thoughts to myself rather than be copied, pasted and analyzed on every hate site, I will say this....This blog will continue as long as there is a show to blog about. I will continue to support Kate 100% in any decisions both she and Jon have regarding their family. I continue to be a fan of the show and hope to keep a place here for fans to talk & discuss what is going on as long as I can, though unfortunately not as much as I used to (almost every day) on my old blog. It will be a cool event to celebrate this fan site's 1 year anniversary July 31st.
I myself have been going through some personal changes. The painful transition of going from a stay-at-home to a working mother has not been easy. I am fortunate enough to have a supportive (yet not exactly thrilled) husband, that is helping me as much as he can to achieve my lofty career aspirations (lol). But the guilt has been devastating for me to adjust to. I am also dealing with a summer full of trips with the kids and a VERY active 18 month old. So even though I will soon have an even fuller plate to deal with, let me assure you that I will always make the time for my blog. Yesterday alone this blog had a record-breaking (for me anyway) number of hits and I am floored! It's become larger than I ever could have imagined. It has been one of my many "labors of love". And I hope and pray that hopefully soon, I will have more positive news to share with you regarding the Gosselin family, and most importantly, those adorable children. Until then, I hope you continue to stop by, and thank you again, for making my blog as big as it has become (again, for me anyway! (lol) ;) xoxoxox
Jon & Kate File For Divorce: People.com
"Over the course of this weekend, Jon's activities have left me no choice but to file legal procedures in order to protect myself and our children," Kate said in a statement Monday night. "While there are reasons why it was appropriate and necessary for me to initiate this proceeding, I do not wish to discuss those reasons at this time, in the hope that all issues will be resolved amicably between Jon and myself. As always, my first priority remains our children."
Jon & Kate Today, June 23rd.... Perhaps in a sign of things to come, Jon and Kate Gosselin went their separate ways Tuesday, with Kate leaving mid-morning to run errands and Jon tooling around their property in his ATV and playing with the kids.
By the time she returned three hours later, around 12:30 p.m., her estranged husband was nowhere in sight. After announcing their separation on their TLC show Jon and Kate Plus Eight Monday night, the pair said the kids would stay in the house and both parents would take turns staying there with them. Kate, meanwhile, signed autographed pictures for some teenaged girls who spotted her outside the supermarket. "So sorry to hear about the divorce," said one of them. "We still love you, Kate." When reporters asked how she was doing, Kate responded, "I'm fine," but declined to say how the kids are faring.
Jon & Kate Plus 8 are now On Production Hiatus: Los Angeles Times
TLC's hit reality show "Jon & Kate Plus 8" is taking a production break after the couple said on Monday night's show that they were separating.
The show, which follows the lives of Jon and Kate Gosselin and their brood, has become a pop culture sensation, getting TLC its best ratings ever and providing the tabloids with a steady diet of gossip. The couple have been on more than 40 magazine covers over the last two months including seven in a row on US Magazine.
TLC said next Monday would be a clip package with some new footage, but that the next all-new episode would be on Aug. 3. People close to the show say the desire to take a production break came from the network.
So far, six new episodes of the show's 40-episode order have aired. The premiere episode drew almost 10 million viewers and the show is still doing better than it had in its previous four seasons. It has also boosted the ratings of TLC's new show "Cake Boss."
Because of all the turmoil in the Gosselin's marriage, TLC does not have enough footage to put together new episodes right now as its production schedule had become very last minute. Episodes this season were often completed as late as the day of airing.
